As an experienced LCSW with 16 years in the mental health field, I aim to empower individuals believe in themselves again. I work with clients through a solution-focused and CBT approach to identify and develop the skills needed to resolve their unique challenges and situations. I help clients to embrace their truth and remind them that it is "Ok not to be perfect!". I specialize in helping people heal from trauma and learn how to love/realize themselves, which entails cultivating healthier relationships, less anxiety and more purpose in their life’s journey. My goal is to help you live life from a place of whole-hearted connection to your world. I am a LCSW (licensed clinical social worker), a Veteran, an adoptive mother, a professor, a daughter, a sister, a community activist, LGBTQIA+ Activist, a nurturer, an empath and and advocate for the voiceless. I am also a survivor of many autrocities that this world has had to offer - but I survived and proudly help others climb out of the mental muck and mire that I used to call home.

My name is Vanessa and I am a licensed Clinical Social Worker in the state of Florida, Missouri, New Mexico, New Hampshire and South Carolina. I am bilingual(English & Spanish) and can provide counseling in both languages. I am originally from New York and have made Florida my home. My clinical background in Mental Health began as an undergrad and continued through grad school, working for the public sector for the Department of Children & Families where I worked with children, then the elderly in skilled nursing facilities and with adolescents in group homes. I then went on to work as a Nurse Navigator and provided services that included counseling and advocacy for oncology patients at one of the largest cancer hospitals in South Florida. In addition to this, I have also worked with adults in inpatient rehab for substance abuse and court ordered treatment, and served outpatient clients in the LGBTQ community. My training is in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Psychodynamic, Solution Focused, and many others that include treatment planning; where my goal is to get my client back to a normal baseline that they are comfortable with and can function in their daily life. I am an open minded, kindhearted and empathetic individual, where my mantra is that I am here for YOU, my job is to assist you in anyway that I can, and help you manage life's daily stressors that may be recent or long-term. I work daily to remove the stigma that Mental Health has in our society, because the reality is, we all have good and bad days, some just need some assistance and guidance on how to manage it better. I believe we are all one step away from a mental health crisis, life is one big roller coaster of stress, worry, emotion that all revolve around something changing in our life that we were not prepared for and do not know how to adjust to it. So my job is to help you navigate all of that and achieve happiness, peace and overall well being.

Confidential talk without judgement. Hi, I’m Shakea “Kea” Roper. I’m a licensed clinical social worker (LCSW). Do you need someone to talk to that will be understanding, compassionate, and encouraging? If so, you have reached the right therapist. I’m a single mother from the inner city. I’ve been through many struggles. From parenting, to family, to work, and just life. I’ve learned you can always work on yourself to help break cycles/patterns that once held you back. I value honesty and keeping it real. When there is free time, I like to sleep, spend time with family, board games, and of course diamond painting/other crafts. I often work with clients to address anxiety, depression, racing undesirable thoughts, and handling day to day life. My counseling style is active, honest, and straight-forward. Many of my clients have said "Kea is a great listener who isn't afraid to challenge my thoughts." I take the time to care. For me, it's an honor to work together to make progress! One of my favorite quotes is “everything seems impossible until it's done” by Nelson Mandela because I know everyone can push past the uncomfortableness of change to accomplish their goals. I have over 14 years of experience focusing on mood disorders and any symptoms that affect daily life. I can work with clients from the following states: Kansas, Missouri, Utah, North Dakota, and Pennsylvania. I spent my last college years at the University of Missouri – Columbia (MIZZOU) earning a master’s degree in social work (c/o/2009). In my sessions, I focus on using evidence-based techniques such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (thinking processes), Strengths Based, Brief Therapy, Problem Solving, DBT (mindfulness), Moral Reconation Therapy (MRT), and Solution Focused to help clients improve all areas of their life. I am a facilitator of Making Sense of Your Worth (MSoYW). I have worked in various fields of social work such as: working with survivors of abuse, half-way houses, reunification of children with their families, youth homes, and psychiatric hospitals.

Are you feeling paralyzed by anxiety or uncertainty? Are you feeling stuck in your daily life? Are you going through a major life transition? Do you want to get to know yourself better, or learn better tools for managing? If this sounds familiar to you, I might be the counselor for you! Many of my clients are people experiencing symptoms of anxiety, depression, PTSD, and adult ADHD, or those going through grief, stress, or a curveball life has thrown their way. I love having the opportunity to help people “lift the fog” after a difficult life experience, new diagnosis, or while struggling with mental health. I believe that I excel in helping clients feel comfortable and supported in the counseling process, and that I have a knack for connecting with people and helping them shift perspective in a way that improves their overall outlook on life. I have a thorough understanding of the deep roots that take hold in our inner-narratives and how it impacts our day-to-day lives, and my strengths lie in helping people navigate their way out of life’s difficult mazes. Have questions about counseling? Have questions for me specifically? Let’s chat and see if we are the right fit! I know how much courage it can take to make change, and if you are here, you have already taken an important step: acknowledging that you are searching for something. Let’s create change together.

Hi, I'm Jonni Allen, from Houston, Texas, a Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist and an Advanced Mediator. I received my masters degree from East Carolina University in Greenville, NC and my law degree from Washburn University in Topeka, KS. I started Pink Rose Therapy to help women reach their full potential. Through empowerment, support, and emotional development I have seen women achieve greater success in their career, higher reports of satisfaction and enjoyment from their interpersonal relationships and a genuine calm and peacefulness when enjoying their down time, allowing more time to spend on hobbies, side hustles, or causes with greater vigor and passion. I approach individual therapy as a partnership, where you and I both work on your treatment plan goals and checking in with how effective our work together is going. Each person is unique and has specific needs. Typically, I utilize cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) techniques to challenge your current assumptions about your situation. I specialize in people experiencing anxiety, adjustment concerns around life transitions, and personality disorders. I am trauma informed and can help you realize how past traumas are impacting your mental health today, and strategies to cope better and calm the mind and body. I am a single mom to three children one adult, and two elementary age.

Welcome! I'm Danielle. Take a moment to acknowledge you've taken the first step towards bettering your mental health because, let's be honest - starting therapy can be empowering, confusing, or scary, all at the same time. Try as we might, sometimes happiness and contentment always seem just out of reach. Depression, anxiety and stress can make getting out of bed in the morning a daunting task. Troubles in your relationship or conflict in the family can make you feel helpless or overwhelmed. Creating a daily routine using strategies that ground you and support moving forward in areas where you feel stuck. Improving your outlook on life to see past the stressful events that feel overwhelming. Talking through challenges and learning different ways to look at something in order to make progress, even when feeling depressed and anxious. As a therapist, it is my goal for clients to feel empowered and supported as we navigate through your journey to healing and wellness. I’m passionate about approaching therapy in a client centered way, and want each session to take you exactly where you need in that moment. My therapy approach is warm and accepting, focusing on establishing overall wellness. Therapy can seem daunting, we will go at a pace that is comfortable for you and discuss the topics you want. What are the tension points? Let's talk about those and develop a daily routine that grounds you and allows you to feel more in control of your life. I am here to listen and encourage you as you talk to support your healing and recovery.
